SPORTS GUY: Of birthdays and bears

Daddy’s Little Princess turned 3 this past week. My how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that I was teaching her how to post up in the lane against her baby brother. Now she’ll be heading off to preschool before I know it.

Can the scholarship offers be far behind? They’d better not be. As I write this, I’m staring at a news story announcing that a year of day care costs more than a year of college tuition in 36 of 50 states.

Two wins for women’s soccer

Lady Trappers defeat Jayhawk foes

The Northwest College women’s soccer team matched its win total from last year on the opening weekend of the 2011 season. The Trappers defeated Garden City 5-0 on Saturday to open the year, then defeated tournament host Barton by a 3-1 count on Sunday.

“We played extremely well, the girls battled for everything,” said Trapper women’s interim coach Kaylin Olivas. “It was truly an outstanding weekend for us. We just played our game, didn’t let them get into our heads and came out on top.”

Two late TDs give Miles City victory

Road Warriors

Experienced Powell eyes playoff return

Mel Gibson would be right at home leading the Panthers’ football program onto the field for the 2011 season. Powell, ranked No. 5 in Class 3A to begin the season, will need to be road warriors in every sense of the word if they hope to return to the playoffs.

The Panthers’ schedule features trips to Torrington, Star Valley and Green River. The “closest” away game is at Buffalo. Altogether, it adds up to more than 2,200 miles in travel time, a figure that’s extreme even by Wyoming prep standards.
